  Hands-on video shows what next year’s ‘iPhone X Plus’ might look like iPhone X Plus? There’s no such thing right now, but Apple is rumored to be prepping one for release next year. YouTube channel Tailosive Tech reminds us of recent rumors that say the “iPhone X Plus” will have a 6.5-inch OLED display, and it tries to explain what sort of features this device might have to offer aside from the increased display real estate.

The only way Apple could justify a significant price rise would be if it radically redesigns the handset Economic Daily, however, reports that Apple is working on two iPhone X successors for 2018 launch of the iPhone SE 2 will be an important event - and the rumoured changes to the design , including a

At least one of Apple’s iPhones in 2018 could come with a big design change, according to a new report.

Apple may release one model next year would come with a 6.1-inch liquid-crystal display and a metal back panel, Nikkei reports, citing people who have knowledge of the company’s plans. Apple may also sell iPhones featuring 5.8- and 6.3-inch screens that use organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, which is available in the iPhone X and offers better resolution and more vibrant colors than LCD.

Apple ’ s iPhones have remained limited to single SIM option so far, but if it does change this could boost the popularity of the devices in a market like India. The note also said Apple won’t remove the notch from the 2018 iPhone design .

The metal version of the iPhone would come with the cheapest of the three, according to the report.

Apple has been rumored to be planning three new iPhones next year including one with minor updates to this year’s iPhone X and with a similar design. A second phone with the 6.3-inch screen would be Apple’s biggest smartphone ever and would also likely resemble the iPhone X, with a screen that nearly covers its face and a glass back panel. The third version would ostensibly replace this year’s iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus smartphones, which also come with metal backs and a design that includes larger bezels around the screen and a physical home button—two features Apple’s iPhone X doesn’t have.

According to the Nikkei source, keeping an LCD model will help Apple keep the price down for one of its models by couple hundred dollars next year compared with the higher-priced OLED and glass models to appeal to a broader customer base. Apple’s iPhone X, for instance, costs $1,000 to start, while a metal-bodied iPhone 8 starts at $699.

For its part, Apple hasn’t commented on its plans and likely won’t until it actually announces new iPhones, as it does every year. And that likely won’t happen until September, if the company’s past release schedule is any indication.
